2011-09-21 - Return to the Ice Age
For the first time in nearly a month, we headed over to the Ice Age trail for a evening walk. We got out a bit late, after much of the light was gone from the sky. But I was still able to get some shots, including this one, which I really like as the trail leads us into the scene and then allows us to figure out where to look from there.
Almost all of the heavy lifting for editing this was in Topaz Adjust. I took some bracketed exposures to do HDR, but I just wasn't liking the conversion due to the fast cloud movement creating an ugly sky. Luckily, Topaz really brought out the life we saw while on the trail. Aperture was also used a bit for some contrast and exposure tweaks.
